    Sounds like she is cannibilistic (however you spell it).

    Here's a pic of her worship.

    (At least she thinks she's special. A special *what* we'll probably never know.)

    At 10lbs maybe she will make a special stew.

    I killed a chicken through transcendental means once , maybe. I was trying to chase it out of the garden and for some reason the little bugger charged at me. Keeled over and dropped dead about five feet from me. She made a special compost.

    Other chickens I have chased for about a mile without killing them.

    Democracy as the core of government is generally favored by physically and mentally weak individuals who would rather identify themselves as a part of a group than as an individual and who are unwilling to compete in a free market because they see themseves incapable of succeeding in fair competition.

    But, a group has no more God given Rights than any one individual. In God We Trust.

    Well if some critter was coming by and looking at you for their next dinner you might go on a diet as well.

    Capturing that cat and hauling it a good distance from your location making sure you cross a river might be worth the time and effort.

    It's not the bobcat (s) I'm concerned about. I also occasionally see a mountain lion, and no, I have not been drinking. I took out three large trees near the house so it could not get too close to the house where it could stalk ME.

    Buff Orpingtons were our first birds (we got 15 "straight run" that turned out to be one hen and 14 roosters - straight my arse). So we supplemented with a dozen B.O. hens and kept one of the roosters.

    Anyway, that hen lived to be 12. Laid pretty well out to seven or eight years . . . and by then she had earned a retirement spot.

    If you have chickens eating their own or other chicken's eggs try adding a tray of pulverized oyster shell to their feed/availability. Could be a mineral deficiency.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Been raising chickens for almost 20 years. Pretty much the one of the dumbest animals to care for. Those birds all love to eat raw eggs, some just have a hard time cracking 'em. Bust an egg on the ground and you'll have a bunch of feathered piranhas on it like nothing you've ever seen.

    Feathered piranhas is correct. I got them a new house last spring. The next morning I go out to give them their breakfast and there is fresh blood splattered everywhere. Now the girls come on out and they are like - hey, human idiot, where's our breakfast? They look fine. However, I soon figured they had caught a mouse overnight and feasted on it. Velociraptors is more like it. I really hope I can get *her worship* to growl for my camera.

    chickens are quite blood thirsty, a bloody chick is a goner very quickly. My daughter lives on Lake Ouachita, her husband manages a fish pen for the game and fish. They lost several "pet" chickens, fancy ones that each had a name, to a pair of resident bald eagles that are nesting nearby. I have seen the eagles catch coots on the water nearby several times, they will also take a fish very quickly if you aren't paying attention.

    I made the neighborhood bald eagle quite angry last spring. It just couldn't figure out how to get to the chickens and was sitting on the side of the road here brooding! Go figure.

    Good idea, but I don't think Scrambles is afraid of anything.
